How to Make a banana hair mask to combat frizz
Walk right past that pricey salon and head to the grocery store instead. Tame your frizz for less at home! This video will show you how to make a banana hair mask to combat frizz.
You Will Need
* 2 to 3 ripe bananas
* A small mixing bowl
* 2 to 3 tablespoons honey
* Plastic wrap or a shower cap
* A towel
* A vitamin E capsule
Step 1. Mix ingredients
Mash two ripe bananas in a small mixing bowl – three if you have long hair – and combine with two to three tablespoons honey.
For extra conditioning, squeeze in a vitamin E capsule.
Step 2. Apply and massage
Apply liberally and gently massage into damp hair, starting at the roots and working your way to the ends.
Don't brush or comb when using a mask – hair is more prone to damage during treatment.
Step 3. Wrap hair
Wrap your hair in plastic wrap or a shower cap. Use your blow dryer on a warm setting over your head to help the mask penetrate the hair cuticle.
Step 4. Let mask set
Wrap a towel over the plastic and keep the mixture on for at least 30 minutes.
Step 5. Rinse and shampoo
Rinse your hair, shampoo, and condition as usual. Rinse again with very cold water to seal in shine.
Step 6. Air dry
Let your hair air dry to maintain shine and reduce heat damage.
FACT: Hair turns gray because older follicles have more hydrogen peroxide, which blocks the synthesis of hair's natural pigment.
